Drivers to Watch

Marcos Ambrose Ambrose finished 20th in the May race at Dover. "We really struggled in the first race there," said Ambrose. "We just couldn't get a handle on the car. We went back for a (tire) test and we felt really good about the changes we made. We're not overly confident, but at the same time we feel that we learned some good information."
Carl Edwards Edwards has finished seventh or better in the last six races at Dover, including a victory in the fall race in 2007. "It's a great track for me and my Aflac team," said Edwards. "We are going to Dover to win this race. For me this is one of the races in the Chase where I can make a difference as a driver. We are going all out -- 100 percent. There is no other way we are going to win this championship."
Kyle Busch Busch has one win and five top-five finishes in nine starts at Dover. "For whatever reason, those race tracks like Dover and Bristol, I've always had good runs at with the Cup car, so we are looking forward to this weekend," said Busch. "I feel like we've got good tracks coming up that we could do some damage at and finish off the year with some more wins, including this weekend."
